England, 1585. The young Will Shakespeare is living in the peaceful town of Stratford-upon-Avon, in the heart of England with his newlywed wife, Anne. But something’s missing. He’s dreaming of prophecies, rough magic and words no one is able to find. 

As he starts following these dreams, life takes him on a journey, from under the protection of an immensely rich Lord to nights in brawl taverns with travelling actors. But Elizabethan England is not an easy place to thrive…

Find out the story of how Will became William Shakespeare through this play bursting with echoes to his future works, in between fantasies and reality.

Join us for this 70 minutes journey of Shakespeare's Lost Years.

British Cast  - Sam Veck - William Shakespeare * Katherine Moran - Anne Shakespeare * Beatrice Lawrence - Olivia Burbage * Ronnie Yorke - Richard Burbage * Charlie Woodward -  Earl of  Southampton / Christopher Marlowe / Gravedigger * Léa Fanchon - Music and Singing

Angleterre, 1585.

D’ici huit ans, William Shakespeare deviendra le plus grand écrivain et dramaturge que le monde ait jamais connu.Pour l’heure, il vit une existence paisible dans le bourg de Stratford-upon-Avon, en plein cœur de l’Angleterre. Pourtant, il lui manque quelque chose. Le jeune homme aimerait découvrir le monde. Il se retrouve, souvent malgré lui, précipité sur des scènes plus branlantes les unes que les autres, à la suite de rencontres fougueuses et rocambolesques, vers son destin et vers Londres.

L’Histoire ne garde aucune trace historique de ces huit années « perdues » de la vie du poète. La pièce propose donc un portrait kaléidoscopique du jeune Will, avec des échos à ses futures créations, entre fantasme et réalités.e aucune trace historique de ces huit années « perdues » de la vie du poète.
